You start this stage right at the railway station, which will take you to the confluence of the Moselle at the Deutsche Eck (German Corner). The Moselsteig Trail access route first winds through the narrow lanes of Winningen, before starting its ascent through the vineyards. Following a serpentine path with a beautiful view of the lower lying village, you then arrive at the Domgartenhütte with a pleasant rest place and a fantastic view of the vineyards over Winningen and the Moselle!
Together with the Rhine-Burgen Trail, you continue along the slope edge. After crossing a side valley, you hike through meadows and vineyards to the L 125 – next to it the Moselsteig Trail now runs a little downhill on the sidewalk. The path now leaves the road again and takes you back uphill into the vineyards. Once at the top, you can again enjoy a gorgeous view of the Moselle Valley: this time upriver and back to the Domgartenhütte. The Moselsteig Trail then continues as a path into the forest to the Hexenhügel (Witch's Hill). The memorial stone reminds of the witch burnings in the Middle Ages.
After a short stretch through the forest, the path joins the top vineyard path, on which you can reach the access road to the airport Koblenz/Winningen. But you leave the road immediately again in the direction of the slope edge, where a mountain hut with a stunning view invites you to a long leisurely rest. On a steep path you continue to the lower lying vineyard path, which the Moselsteig Trail follows with best views downstream. After a longer section, which is mainly even, you now continue downhill. You then hike through an area with meadows and fruit trees. Especially when the cherry trees are blooming, this section is particularly attractive! The Gülser cherries in the region are famous. Continue through the new development of Güls and arrive at the old outskirts of the town of the Koblenz district at the Gross-Heiligenhäuschen. This is where the Moselsteig Trail main path ends.
At the Deutsche Eck (German Corner) you follow the Moselsteig Trail access route signs, which will first guide you to the banks of the Moselle. From here, you can see the Gülser railway bridge, on which you cross the Moselle for the last time. On the other side, you immediately continue on the towpath which takes you along the water's edge. You will hike the last few kilometres along the riverbank. If you would like to find out more about the river inhabitants, a visit to the Mosellum at the last Moselle barrage is worth a visit. With its exhibition on the Moselle's wild life and the Fischtreppe (Fish Stairs) it offers you an exciting stop, before continuing in direction of the Koblenz old town. Along the old town you then pass the last Moselle bridges and reach the worthy end point of this stage: the Deutsche Eck (German Corner) at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle.
